Description: First aid for heat illness includes taking immediate measures to cool down the affected person. This can be done by moving them to a shaded or air-conditioned area, removing excessive clothing, and applying cool water or ice packs to their body. It is important to offer them water to sip slowly, but avoid giving them any caffeinated or alcoholic beverages. In severe cases, if the person is disoriented or loses consciousness, it is crucial to call emergency services immediately. While waiting for medical assistance, continue to cool the person down by fanning them or applying wet towels to their skin. Monitor their breathing and heart rate, and stay with them until professional help arrives. #heat #prevention #safety #emergency
